    Even as sociocultural diversity continues to grow in the U.S., many classrooms offer a one-size-fits-all curriculum in which assessment relies heavily on standardized tests. Rejecting the narrow viewing of young children solely as prospective students, the authors see them as "simultaneously players, learners, readers of the world and words, artists—among other identities." This volume gives us rich evidence of the role of stories (enacted and told), imaginative play, and writing in children's language learning. Copublished with Teachers College Press

    The ability to use language (speak, read, write) is not something that children suddenly or automatically develop. It is rather a culmination of experiences with language that begin at birth. Sharing stories (oral storytelling, books) and “story experiences” (conversations, songs, poems, rhymes) with infants and toddlers is critical to building their emergent literacy skills. At the same time, it expands their experience and understanding of the world and also prompts positive interactions with adults and other children, fostering social development.

    A day in a preschool classroom can be hectic, and with so many learning goals to be met, it’s no surprise that teachers sometimes wonder how they will get it all done. This accessible book by Judith Schickedanz shows teachers how to maximize the scope and power of their instruction through integration—across content domains and across learning contexts.

    From the very beginning of a child's life, effective listening includes becoming aware, focusing, selecting cues from the environment, and filtering out distractions. And in the preschool years, children are ready to learn a lot more about becoming good listeners. Yet very few teachers have had specific preparation for actually teaching children how to listen.

    By Dorothy S. Strickland & Shannon Riley-Ayers

    Today’s busy early childhood practitioners are being asked to do more, know more, and produce “results,” especially in the area of literacy development. Here is a resource that covers key aspects of literacy learning and teaching, including child development, standards, curriculum planning, assessment, professional development, and connections between school and home. Attention is given throughout to issues related to linguistic and cultural diversity, and all chapters end with “leadership strategies” that serve as a quick guide for action and reflection.

    Interacting with meaningful print builds a foundation for future literacy skills. Watch as teachers use interactive reading, writing centers, interactive reading charts, and environmental print as they incorporate language arts throughout the classroom. You will not only see these activities implemented in the classroom, but also how teachers plan and connect activities to language arts standards.
